Default Re: New Mystery Tool from Bridge City

She told me no, and further told me if I returned the first one and got a refund then I could re buy the items and take advantage of the special. Well speaking of special, it didn't make me feel like a customer that bridge city wanted to keep. I have planned on many future purchases to add to the purchases already made. Not to mention I didn't think it was fair to bridge city for me to return a used tool for a refund and re buy it new, just to get the square at 14.09.

I know you guys make great stuff and I know you have a hard time pleasing all your customers, but for a small thing like a 14.00 price on the square, I would think you'd treat your existing customers a little special too.

I'm not asking for anything from you, I still love your stuff, I'm still planning on getting the JMP on the next run and you new thingamajig, and other tools in the future... just letting you know I don't feel as compelled to bragging you guys up as much as I usually do. Food for thought.
Even though I have the new DJ-1 drill jig ordered (I think it would work with a pencil bushing for laying CL's) I jumped at the CS-2 & CS-6 combo special! I have received them & they are great tools as are all of the BCTs. Now, when I am working on projects I have to decide between using my CS-6 or my DSS-6 saddle square.

Please pass on to John that the "combo specials" work for sales & I hope to see more of them in the future.

By the way, where can I buy other size bushings for the DJ-1? Someplace like McMaster-Carr? I've ordered your complete set.
